Composer Of The Week – Milhaud

Monday 18 to Friday 22 October
12.00noon-1.00pm BBC RADIO 3

Donald Macleod explores the globetrotting world of 20th-century French composer Darius Milhaud. A member of influential group Les Six, these days Milhaud is rather unfairly known through just a handful of works. In fact, as this week of his music demonstrates, he was a prolific composer who wrote in every imaginable style for every conceivable combination of instruments. At the time of his death, aged 81, in 1974, his catalogue contained over 440 works.

The week begins with works that reflect Milhaud's relationship with the Provençale landscape and his religious roots, including a song from his Poèmes juifs collection, settings of eight anonymous Jewish poems; a movement from his first string quartet, which he dedicated to the Aix-en-Provence born painter Cézanne; and his colourful tapestry of the sunlit colours of the region, Suite Provençale.

Martin Handley presents the Teresa Carreño Youth Orchestra of Venezuela

Martin Handley presents the Teresa Carreño Youth Orchestra of Venezuela, from the successful El Sistema, with Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5 and music by Copland, Chavez and Bernstein, recorded at the Royal Festival Hall in London.

Latin forces are unleashed in the UK debut of this brilliant Venezuelan youth orchestra, bringing a contrasting programme under the baton of their exciting youthful conductor, Christian Vásquez. From the dazzling rhythms of Bernstein's Candide Overture, Copland's El Salon Mexico and Carlos Chavez's Sinfonía India, to the veritable tour de force of Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5, this programme underlines their universal credentials.

The Essay – Architecture: The Fourth R

Monday 18 October
11.00-11.15pm BBC RADIO 3

Making shelter is a fundamental human activity, so, asks Sunand Prasad, former President of the Royal Institute of British Architects, why don't people talk about it?

The way people build reflects society's values and aspirations, but also its fears. In The Essay, Sunand Prasad undertakes a journey through architecture, from the India he grew up in to the Utopian vision of Le Corbusier; from the concrete carbuncles of post-war Britain to the design that will combat climate change.

In this first programme, he examines human relationships with buildings of the past 200 years, in a search for people's mistrust of the new. Despite the failed Utopias of Sixties tower blocks, Prasad sees a brave new architecture emerging in their wake.

A History Of The World In 100 Objects Ep 26/30

Monday 18 to Friday 22 October
9.45-10.00am BBC RADIO 4

Neil MacGregor, director of the British Museum, explores the political landscape of the 20th century in the final week of BBC Radio 4's landmark series telling the history of the world through artefacts from the museum.

Throughout this closing week he examines some of the major social and political movements that have helped shaped the contemporary landscape.

Today's object is a plate decorated during the Russian revolution, made in 1901 in the Imperial Porcelain Factory in St Petersburg. Twenty years later it was painted over as a propaganda tool for the new Communist Revolution – decorated in the same factory that had become the State Porcelain Factory and in a city renamed as Petrograd.

The director of the State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, Mikhail Piotrovsky, and that great historian of modern Russia, Eric Hobsbawn, help piece together this moment in history.

Midlife Relaunch

Monday 18 October
11.00-11.30am BBC RADIO 4

Midlife Relaunch follows three case studies investigating whether it is possible to start a new career in one's fifties and if it is feasible to escape the nine-to-five straitjacket and find greater fulfilment.

When Denise and Paul from Portsmouth returned from a summer holiday they felt they couldn't face another winter commuting to their accounting and teaching jobs, and so decided to move to Cyprus.

Christine and Stuart from Nottingham gave up steady jobs and the prospect of generous pensions to set up a B&B and furniture-making business, 500 miles north in the Scottish Highlands.

And Fiona from Derbyshire dreamed of working with cows but found herself stuck working in a housing association. Now in her fifties, she's running a dairy farm in Ayrshire.

Afternoon Play – Wind, Sand And Stars

Monday 18 October
2.15-3.00pm BBC RADIO 4

When Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and his co-pilot Prévot crash in the Libyan desert while attempting to break the record for the Paris-Saigon flight in 1936 the odds are stacked against them.

Miraculously they survive the impact – but, while the plane doesn't catch fire or explode, the fuel and water tanks are ruptured and supplies are minimal. With only half a litre of coffee, a little white wine, a few grapes and an orange, they only know they are stranded somewhere in a square of inhospitable desert whose sides measure 400km.

The days are scorching and the nights freezing. Their signal fires go unnoticed. Their forays to find help are fruitless and increasingly desperate. Physically weak, they become prone to hallucinations. Life is tested to its limits and the increasingly debilitated dialogue between Exupéry and Prévot is accompanied by Exupéry's inner thoughts and meditations on their situation. This tale not only describes their physical journey but, in Exupéry's characteristic fashion, takes listeners on a journey that deals with previous flying expeditions and his very detailed view of the insights of flying.

Wind, Sand And Stars, the autobiographical tale of Antoine de Exupéry's plane crash, is dramatised by Rod Wooden. Paul Rhys plays Exupéry, Adeel Akhtar plays Prévot and Sean Baker plays Bedouin.

Producer/David Hunter for the BBC
